PAJAMA GAME at BALTIMORE CENTER STAGE

REVIEW4U.COM, by Bob Anthony 
 Christianne Tisdale wowed with her Mary Martin exuberant singing as the tomboyish union mediator who weakened from her position of “not at all in love” in soft romantic tones.

…Babe, a pixie-ish Rosie the Riveter. Complicating matters for Sid is the huge crush he develops on Babe.  It's easy to see how he would, for Babe is played by Christianne Tisdale, who radiates the same blend of little-girl vulnerability and tomboy spunkiness that made Holly Hunter a star. Even in her work clothes—a maroon handkerchief knotted on her head and yellow suspenders holding up a loose skirt—she looks like a fetching gamin.
  
Baltimore Sun, by J. Wynn Rousuck
…It’s a case of opposites attracting, and Christianne Tisdale’s Babe and Robert Bartley’s Sid make an adorable pair.  Proclaiming in song, “I’m Not at All in Love,” Tisdale raises her fist in emphasis, but when Sid accidentally bumps into her, the encounter leaves her woozy…As Babe, Tisdale is every bit as “peppy and full of spunk” as the character is described;  her Babe clearly is besotted with Bartley’s smooth Sid.
  
CITYPAPER, by Jack Purdy
…The two female leads, in particular, keep The Pajama Game in high gear.  As Babe Wilson, head of the factory grievance committee and dedicated union gal, Christianne Tisdale is earthy and exuberant, a semi-tomboy whose melancholy reprise of the show’s best-known love song, “Hey There,” is wistful and affecting.
  
Baltimore Chronicle, by  Howard Gradet
There are five major roles in the show, and in them Center Stage has five winners.  Robert Bartley and Christianne Tisdale, Sid and Babe, are nothing if not hunky and spunky;  there is palpable chemistry between them, even during the curtain call.
Tisdale has all the spunk the part calls for, and a terrific voice…Tisdale looks great and makes it easy to see why Sid would fall for Babe so fast, and so hard.  She’s wonderfully effective in “I’m Not At All I Love” and “There Once Was a Man”;  too bad the creators of the show forgot to give Babe a solo.
  
Washington Post, by Nelson Pressley
But it's Christianne Tisdale, as Babe, who gives the couple pizzazz. Tisdale has a brassy voice and a spark-plug style; she flexes her arm in a Rosie the Riveter pose during one of the early dance numbers, summing up Babe's can-do energy. Tisdale makes it fun to watch the tough-as-nails Babe melt for Sorokin while clinging to her union-first ideals, gliding pleasantly on the surface of this corny dilemma.

 The romantic leads, Robert Bartley and Christianne Tisdale, have the voices to carry off these gorgeous songs.
